Take a look at the full meeting notes for the details, but I’ll give you the highlights right here:

  • Firebug 1.8a3 is out. It works fine with Firefox 5, but there is a crashing bug on Aurora (Firefox 6) and Nightly. It’ll be fixed in tomorrow’s Nightly.
  • It’s worth nothing that Firebug 1.7.1 is compatible with Firefox 5. Sign up for the Beta channel today!
  • Cedric Vivier posted a very quick demo of the Style Editor. Notice how the elements affected by the rule you’re editing are highlighted.
  • Kyle Simpson posted a UI prototype to show some of what he was thinking for the HTML editor

    “It’s worth nothing that Firebug 1.7.1 is compatible with Firefox 5″… not according to my Firefox 5 beta channel installation which insists on disabling Firebug 1.7.1 and doesn’t find any updates for it that might fix compatibility…

      You need to install Firebug 1.7.1 from AMO (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/firebug/). AMO automatically raised max Firefox version to 5 while getfirebug.com/releases didn’t. This will be solved by releasing Firebug 1.7.2 next week.
